An accident Friday resulted in a vehicle on the lawn of the Texas County Administrative Center in Houston.
Police said a vehicle driven by Barbara A. McGruder, 70, of 9019 Arthur Creek Drive, was attempting to back from a parking space, but traveled forward, crossing the sidewalk, striking a concrete post and came to rest on the lawn. The driver told police she believed she placed the vehicle in reverse, but mistakenly placed in the vehicle in drive.
